Two new smaller models have joined QSC’s Q-Sys processor portfolio in order to meet the demand in smaller spaces that require fewer input and outputs, as well the increased popularity of networking peripherals. Utilising the same software-based architecture, control engine and design software suite as the existing Q-Sys Core 110f, Core 510i and Core 5200, these smaller Core processors include the Core 8 Flex, which boasts on-board analogue audio I/O and GPIO plus network I/O and the Core Nano which offers network-only audio I/O processing and control. As with the rest of the platform, the models both offer scalable DSP processing, video routing and bridging for web conferencing, as well as third-party endpoint integration without the need for separate dedicated control processors.

“Pretty much ever since we released our Core 110f processor, customers have been asking us when we were going to cut that in half. There are many applications where 24 I/O channel capacity is just not needed,” explained Jatan Shah, executive vice president, chief operating office and technology officer, QSC. “These new models are the answer to that. One offers on-board analogue I/O while the other is strictly networked-based, so users can make their decision based on the type of endpoint requirements they have in their space. Just because they are smaller cores though, doesn’t mean we had to compromise. Both models still provide the fully integrated, software-based audio, video and control processors that Q-Sys is known for.”

The Q-Sys Core 8 Flex includes a 64x64 networked I/O channel capacity with eight on-board Flex audio channels and eight GPIOs to integrate analogue audio and control devices into Q-Sys. The Q-Sys Core Nano offers the same 64x64 networked audio I/O without the on-board analogue I/O in order to support installations with smaller spaces with centralised processing and fully networked endpoints. Both occupy a half-width, 1U footprint and include pre-installed 8x8 software-based Dante audio channels (licence upgradeable up to 32x32 channels), driverless USB audio and AV bridging capabilities.

“These new processors answer the call of smaller spaces that require fewer I/O as well as the increased popularity of fully networked peripherals with a solution that stays true to the foundation of our platform, delivering the rock-solid processing power and extensibility you have come to expect from QSC,” stated Trent Wagner, audio product manager, QSC. “The Core 8 Flex and Core Nano ‘rightsize’ the on-board I/O and physical footprint without compromising on features, performance or flexibility.”

In addition to their suitability in a range of applications from government to healthcare and education, QSC is targeting the new models at the connected meeting space, with universal connectivity for all of the popular soft codec conferencing platforms.
